Re: lamp location

No, that was wrong advice. On this model, there is a large door on the right side (as you face the screen) of the TV at the bottom. Remove several screws to take the cover off. Inside, looking along the back of the TV (not toward the screen), you'll see what looks like a wire bail (handle) on a square inset piece about 3 inches square. Remove the screws and pull on the wire bail and the lamp housing will come out with the lamp contained inside. Make sure you unplug the TV before doing any of this. If you are replacing the entire housing with a new lamp you can just plug in the new housing and replace the screws and cover. If you are placing a new bulb in the existing housing you take off 4 small screws and remove the metal cage from the housing, remove and replace the bulb the same way the original is in there, put it back together, and you're done.

You must follow instructions very carefully when replacing the lamp. Chances are the door did not get shut tightly allowing an open circuit to the door switch and the fan. If the fan is not running you must go back and make sure the lamp installation is right. also, if you did not purchase an exact replacement lamp it may be defective. If the fan is running then the chance is for a bad lamp. Hope this helps.

My Panasonic multimedia projection tv -PT-61LCX65 needs a new lamp....where is the bulb located within the tv? How do I remove?

Hello, the lamp is located at the rear of the set. Unplug the tv before you start. There is a door secured by a screw, remove it to expose the lamp housing. There is a screw that secures the lamp, remove it, then you can gently grasp the handle and slowly pull it towards the rear of the set. To replace the lamp, gently slide the new lamp back in and secure it with the screw you pulled out. replace the lamp door cover, and replace the screw. plug the tv back in and turn it on, you should be fixed. Here's a link to a video on how to do it....

The lamp LED blinks 4 times and repeats, I replaced the lamp but the lamp led is still blinking 4 times and repeats and I have no picture

4 times blinking light indicates problem with exhaust fan in KDS-R50XBR1 and possible causes are as follows:
-Fan 1-4 power is not supplied. (ASU board)
-Fan connector is not attached securely.
-Fan caught wires or harnesses.
Please check exhaust fan in tv, it is located at lower right of tv looking at rear of tv.

2 rear fans are working, after ballast spark the 2 rear facing fans then stop and the power light blinks red 4 times, is this a failing ballast?

Please check correctly how many times the power LED is flashing. There is no option for flashing four times.

I have attached a diagram how to check it please follow the steps and you can get rid of this problem65de2ca.jpg

Green projection lamp not working

  1. you will need a manual screwdriver to remove the panel. You need a soft non-abrasive cloth to avoid any contact with your fingers and the lamp assembly.
  2. Turn off the Projector. After the unit has cooled down properly, remove the power cord from the outlet..
  3. Remove Lamp Compartment Door. The lamp compartment on projectors islocated underneath the projector unit. For Rear Projection TVs, the lamp compartment is located in the rear bottom left or right side of the TV.. Remove the screws and the lamp compartment door.
  4. Remove Lamp Assembly. pull out the lamp assembly disconnect any power cords that is still connected to the lamp assembly. Put it aside and don't get it confused with your new lamp!
  5. Clean Lamp Compartment. Dust gets everywhere and while you have the projector open, use a soft cloth to remove any loose dust from the lamp compartment.
  6. Insert New Lamp Assembly. reconnect any power cables to the new lamp if present and slide the new lamp into the compartment in the same orientation that the original lamp came out.
  7. Replace Lamp Compartment Door. Set the lamp compartment door back into place and securely screw in the door without screwing it in too tight

Zenith E44W46LCD Lamp Access Door Location

I found the location to get at the lamp. If you are loking at the front of the TV there is a small panel at the bottom of the right end. Two screws, remove panel, two screws inside and a small handle that lifts so you can slide the unit out. 4 screws on top of the cage that the lamp sits in, carefully slide up the silver bracket holding the bulb, be careful the edges are sharp. Remove the bulb from bracket and remove the 2 cables attached to the bulb. Now just do the same but in reverse. Make sure you wear plastic gloves that should be provided because if your fingers touch the lense you could be out the price of the lamp.
